A new approach to healing, called regenerative therapy, has become significantly more well-known over the past decade. This type of therapy focuses on healing tissues or organs that have lost function, aged over time, been affected by disease, or experienced damage. The focus of regenerative therapy is using the body’s natural healing properties and using them as a way to allow the body to heal itself more efficiently. We know that a cut to the skin will heal itself, a broken bone will mend, and the liver of a donor will regenerate within a few weeks. Scientists have found a way to use the body’s natural process of repairing itself and apply it to other health conditions. Regenerative therapy is a way to do this.
Types of Regenerative Therapy
This new field of regenerative medicine uses different techniques to help the body heal or regenerate. Common types of regenerative therapy can include cell therapy, cartilage regeneration, PRP, or plasma-rich platelets, prolotherapy, and a newer form of regenerative therapy known as exosome therapy. Each of these types of regenerative therapies works in a different way depending on patients’ varying needs or areas of concern. Regenerative therapy focuses on healing injuries and can be helpful in treating back pain through rejuvenation of spinal tissue in the spinal discs. Cartilage regeneration focuses on reducing musculoskeletal pain and is aimed at repairing damaged cartilage. PRP therapy has been used more in sports medicine to repair tendon injuries. The regenerative therapy known as prolotherapy treats injured joints and connective tissue. The newest type of regenerative therapy on the market, known as exosome therapy, is an alternative to cell-based therapy and uses exosomes, or parts of cells, in the healing process. It has helped many with chronic conditions and is also being used as a means to counteract the effects of aging. Its uniqueness of not requiring live cells is one of the reasons why it is becoming more and well known in the field of regenerative medicine.
About Exosome Therapy
Exosomes are small vesicles that are released by cells. These small parts of cells are known to aid in communication from cell to cell. As exosomes travel from cell to cell, they release proteins and genetic information. When communication is improved, cells will rush faster to the site of pain or injury in order to speed up the healing process. As we age, this communication response slows down, which is why it can take longer for the body to heal. Chronic diseases, genetic disorders, or chronic inflammation can also interfere with the communication process from cell to cell, meaning healing can’t take place as it should. This is where exosomes come in. Using exosomes for regenerative therapy means exosomes are delivered into the affected area and can begin signaling to other cells to return to healthy function. As proteins are released, cells within the body are told how to regulate, which can trigger the body’s response to stop inflammation and aid in the healing process, bringing about sought-after long-term relief.
